I have broken lets say as many electronic devices as possible. There were very few things in home which were spared by my curious eyes. I always digested the scoldings and insults of friends for doing such things and continued to do it and it really did help me. My curious nature helped me numerous times whenever possible. It helped me to keep myself updated and keep me on the track.
When I was in Jalgaon (my native place in Maharashtra, India) I was called "scientist" by my friends because I had numerous questions in mind. My teachers used to make fun of me saying that I am stupid and ask too many questions. Nobody was there to support my curious nature. Finally when I was in my eleventh grade, I took computer science as the subject. My curious nature helped me there too. At that time I was planning to make a small console application which will store the records of the students. And I was supposed to be selling the software to my college :D lols... I know it was stupid enough but smart enough to be thinking of my age. My curious nature turned towards software.
Then when I came to Delhi, I enrolled myself for a diploma course and studied variety of software subjects. I got passionate about Microsoft .NET Framework and targeting the web was one of my favorite topics to learn. Its a huge topic and I don't think its easy enough to digest it just in a year. I probably will need many years to learn and update myself to the latest standards. Keeping myself updated and latest is one of my passion. This curiousity will last for lifetime I guess as there are always new softwares and Microsoft is fast enough to feed curious people like me with the latest technology :) Thanks Microsoft!
My curiosity for software continues today too. And will continue for who knows for how many years! They say curiosity killed the cat, but I am not a cat :P :D hehe! I am saved fortunately :) Now I am a Junior ASP.NET Developer the journey has just began... :) I have a long way to go... I believe "Journey of thousand miles must begin with a single step" :) and my curiosity and passion will help me in getting it!
